Beware of pink ribbons.
The words "healing", "heal" "healer", and even "wellness" have always felt icky to me, but I never could quite put my finger on exactly why, until I came across something that Mary Morrissey said in "The 11 Forgotten Laws".
I don't remember exactly how she phrased it, but the gist was that Jesus never met a leper, a lame person, or anyone who had an injury or illness.
Because Jesus literally didn't see their illness. To him, the illness didn't exist. He made no agreement with illness. Only with perfection. And this is how he was able to heal people.
You see, there is a widespread false premise at work in the human mind, that the only way to make negative, unwanted things go away is to fight against them.
So we have wars against drugs and wars against terrorism and wars against cancer...
Not exactly working too well, are they? (Especially the "war against women". Why, I see those brazen hussies everywhere, just going about their business like there's not a care in the world. Shameful.)
UNLESS the purpose of these "wars" isn't to eradicate the bad things, but to subtly promote them in order to keep dollars flowing into the coffers of those who benefit.
Sinister thought, isn't it?
But I wonder...
Most people think of words like "healing", "healer", "health", "wellness", "survivor", "escape", and "gratitude" as positive words. But they carry with them a subtle poison, whiffs of the energy of struggle, disease, and suffering.
Why do cancer survivors so often get cancer again? It's because the energy of "cancer" is present in the word "survive". And every time a "cancer survivor" goes in for a followup exam to make sure there's no more cancer, they are actually reactivating the energy of cancer in their minds, which in turn reactivates the cancer in their bodies.
Does knowing this make you wonder what's really going on when, once a year, the pharmaceutical industry trots out its "pink ribbon" breast cancer awareness campaign?
It does me.
If you're a business owner, be wary of pink ribbons. Use your sensitivity to find out where your customers are hurting, but then offer them solutions in a genuine spirit of helpfulness, without manipulation or posturing. And then deliver on your promises.
